Panyaden parent, Antionette, Ylvie’s mum, came to the Year 2 class to show students how to make wax-coated fabric squares. Students learned about an alternative to plastic wrap for food and other things and at the same time were able to make something useful to take home. Super bees!

During our Wednesday morning sati and samadhi (mindfulness and concentration) session, P3-P6 exercised their memorisation and focusing skills with a coin game. Kru Ying gave sets of coins to small groups of students, who then took turns in putting them in a different order and before screening them from view. The group then had to memorise and recreate the sequence. This simple but effective exercise helps train our students to stay present and focus on the task at hand. The session ended with everyone sitting in quiet meditation before going back to class. Photos on the blog.
The Kung Fu Chef has come with his special pot of soup again! He congratulated K2-3 students for sending him more letters than any other class giving examples of how they had practiced last week’s habit, ‘Mattannuta’ (‘knowing the right amount’) and invited them to help him put the ingredient into his big shiny pot.
Deftly kicking his right leg out and raising his left arm, our Kung Fu Chef then demonstrated this week’s new wise habit ‘Chanta’ or ความยินดีในกิจที่ทำ (ฉันทะ), which means ‘desiring truth, knowledge and goodness.’ For more on the meaning of ‘Chanta’, read Panyaden School Director Neil Amas’ upcoming post on the subject.
